Sure, for $340 you can buy my Sony Walkman. I'll even pay for the shipping.

For that money shopping around for speakers only, no head unit and no installation

A good set of speakers should run you about 300, a good box for some suns and sub will be about 150 and a head unit around 350, two amplifiers another 200+ and wires another 80+ depending on the quality of wires.
So you looking around 850+ complete sound system that's replacing everything and what brand you choose.

I will suggest going to some local car sound shops, they have deals on speakers since they need to make room for newer models. Let them know your budget and they will work with u...

If you don't mind used equipment, check Facebook for Groups that do swap meets and used items for sale in your city or county. My city has a facebook group for people to sell used items. There will be lots of used stereo equipment for sale in those groups. I got an amp and 12 inch sub for $125 used. Sounds great too! This idea may not appeal to some, but if you are on a budget and don't mind used stuff, it might work for you.

Look on Craigslist I always find good deals on audio stuff. But I would suggest saving for better quality stuff, don't settle for cheap Walmart brand stuff.

Sonicelectronix has alot of good deals and almost everything is cheap compared to what a shop or store would sell the stuff for.

I work part time installing / selling car audio and in my experience people almost never factor in installation labor or additional parts into what they want to spend.

Say some one buys a amp and a loaded enclosure, most of the time they don't know that they need a amp hookup kit that costs $80.00-150.00. Or that if they have a factory radio they need a $15.00 line out put converter and there is a charge to install that.

The best thing you can do if your looking to upgrade is go to a shop and explain what your looking for (more base, better quality sound, more volume, Bluetooth, iPod, ect.…) and work with the installer to find a solution that fits your needs and price range. And if you feel like they are trying to up sell you call around to other shops and get quotes and opinions from them.
